Hello! it was sold to me as similar to thermage but more effective at reducing wrinkles. It was pointed out to me by my helpful cosmetic treatment woman that it would work really well on my undereye wrinkles as botox couldnt do anything about them and it was all getting crepey. Now having had thermage twice before with no effect you might think I would have said no thank you but because it was new and the manufacturer had planted various media pieces about uk celebrities who "ironed" their faces with pelleve i thought i would give it a go. No effect at all. And the procedure is quite funny. she holds the hot tip on r face until it is unbearable when you shout out "hot!!!!!" and she moves the tip and someoone puts some cooling gel on the area - aand then this all gets repeated for about an hour. she says thehotter the better so you're really trying to hold off before shrieking "hot!!!!!". I was just shaking my head at my gullibility when it becaame clear there was going to be no benefits. I'm sure the mnfacturere would say ah, but new tighter collgen might be forming over a period of 6 months but theres so many variables in tht period how they could point to one item having an impact is a tricky concept for me. Anyway, my lines are the same 6 months later. So I guess I'm not giving it a thumbs up! cheers!

I am very interested in this- not just for wrinkles and tone but for mainly for sagging.
Only a handful of docs do it around here and well...I'm waiting to see what the general opinion is.
It was explained to me that it works quite differently then Thermage, however which appealed to me. And that yes, you may not notice any difference right away but that the docs do their re-checks in 9mos (vs. 6).
Most people then go in yearly after the initial 2 sessions which are done within the spread of 2-4wks (I think it was)
Now, that's a schedule that would work for me!!

Here's my update - Certainly no benefit in lines on forehead or under eyes noticed thus far and it has been many months since I had peleve. Personally I would put it beneath fraxel and thermage but I know that some people (celebs!) swear by it. Good luck if you have a go, hope it goes well
